ghosting

Hi, I'm new here. Am trying HDR, just got photomatix and have been playing with it using some 3-exposure sets I took on holiday. I'm loving it and would like to post some for your expert feedback. One thing before I do - any hints on getting rid of ghosting? It seems quite strong with trees against sky, wind caused no doubt. I've used the "remove ghosting from movement" tool in generating the HDR, but still its there. Alternatively, any tips for getting rid of it in CS4, other than hours with steady hand with the patch tool?

Re: ghosting

It depends on the image sets in general and what in the image is affected by ghosting. If it is fairly contained/localized and not a main point of focus in the image I can sometimes get away with choosing one of the exposures I like best and use just it and masking out the rest for the affected area/s.

Re: ghosting

If you shoot in raw you could also simulate HDR on one of the shots and use it to mask in the ghost areas as littlecoo recommends above.

Re: ghosting

Skydog and Littlecoo - thanks for responding and for the tips. I have tried doing the HDR from single image with diff exposures forced from raw, but I didn't seem to get the details enhancement I liked for the scene. The ghosting is around trees against the sky, not the main focal point of the image but a little distracting. Unfortunately the masking method only serves to bring attention to the area of the ghosting and I think the sky may be blended from the different exposures - is that likely or is it more likely that I'm still trying to master CS4 at the same time as photomatix and getting myself in a pickle? Will post image when I'm happier with it and see what you think.
